Akhilesh’s Vikas Rath Yatra Looks Audacious: This is what Uttar Pradesh can expect from this promising Yatra
Akhilesh Yadav is ready with its election campaign battle plan with Samajwadi Vikas Rath Yatra – Vikas Se Vijay Ki Ore. Akhilesh and his team had chalked out everything for the 2017 elections — logistics, media management and route map for campaigning.
Four youth leaders – Sanjay Lathar, Sunil Yadav, Anand Bhadauriya and Udayveer , who had handled Akhilesh’s Kranti Ratha Yatra in 2011, have been tasked now with conducting the ‘Samajwadi Vikas Rath Yatra’ . This yatra will be a sort of catalyst for a change in politics. Akhilesh breaks communalism and casteism through this yatra in which he is highlighting development works done by his government.
The Vikas Rath started from La Martiniere College ground in Lucknow on November 3 and finished the day at neighbouring Unnao . The second leg of the yatra will begin from Kanpur after the party’s silver jubilee function at Janeshwar Misra park on November 5.
The rath is fitted with all modern facilities apart from Wi-Fi connectivity and a mini CM office. The vehicle has been equipped with a hydraulic platform that will rise through the sun roof of the bus from which Akhilesh will address people. Apart from huge LED screens fitted on the outside, the rath will have a coat of red and green paint the party’s colours and huge photographs of senior party leaders including Mulayam and Akhilesh.
Akhilesh Yadav is past 4.5 years has emerged as a strong leader and has transformed UP . Akhilesh Yadav is a youth leader whose development narrative sets him apart from others. He only wants development to be associated with his name. He has been working really hard, also trying to give the party an image makeover and his work has resonated well with the people of the state. So far, he has lived up to his image of being “a clean face”
Back in 2012, Akhilesh took bus yatra, the Samajwadi Kranti Rath, across the state. It was his innovative style of campaigning across the state through his cycle rallies in the run-up to the 2012 Uttar Pradesh assembly election that caught people’s attention. He addressed over 250 meetings, covering around 12,000 km, some parts of it on cycle.
The Samajwadi Party, a regional party founded on Lohiaite principles and headed by dhoti-wearing, Hindi-speaking socialist leaders such as Mulayam Singh Yadav and Janeshwar Mishra, was hardly a party that appealed to the youth. That’s where Akhilesh made a difference. Soon after he entered politics, he activated the youth fronts of the party. There was a time when the party was seen as outdated and anti-technology. But Akhilesh Yadav changed that and distributed lakhs of laptops to students and used technology to improve the public service delivery system.
At 38, Akhilesh became the youngest chief minister of the state which is in itself an achievement. As it is rightly said that “Actions speaks louder than words”, so is the case with our young and dynamic UPCM. His praise-worthy development schemes have contributed a lot towards the welfare of Uttar Pradesh.
Akhilesh Yadav will surely repeat the magic with his Vikas Rath Yatra – Vijay se Vikas Ki Ore
